My husband & I had been searching many on-lines store trying to find a new platform bed for our new memory-foam mattress. Every bed we found that we liked, had a super high headboard which wouldn't work for us as our bed is in front of a window & we didn't want to block it. This bed was the perfect height. When we received the bed, not only was it as attractive as it was on-line, but the quality was amazing. My hsuband & I were both very much surprised when we went to put it together & found out how sturdy it was. This is definitely a quality item, with quality workmanship. I would recommend this to anyone. We are very, very happy with this purchase.
